No smudging, no flaking, no worries. This innovative mascara uses a 3-D film-coating formula with plumping ingredients that maximize the volume of your lashes in one stroke. Looking for length? D.J.V. Beautenizer Fiberwig FX Mascara contains brush-on fiber extensions in the glossy black formula that attach to your natural lashes, giving them dramatic length you won't believe. Achieve a Hollywood-worthy look by combining Volume Lash with Fiberwig LX layered on top!

Three of our b-glowing.com staff sampled this transforming combo, and we're sharing their experience with you!

"As a girl with short lashes this mascara is a must-have. It was so easy to apply, no mess, no fuss. It makes my lashes look much longer and fuller. The best part is that it stays put until I’m ready to take it off." - Customer Service Director, Katelyn

"It lengthened my lashes and the wand perfectly separated without leaving any clumpy residue behind. It also made my lashes look and feel fuller and thicker." - Operations Manager, Kelsey

"I love the length AND volume this gives my lashes. I think the formula is a perfect blend of both. It also meets my 'mascara MUST' criteria: Jet Black Color, No Flaking, Soft Feel, Easy to Remove." - Brand Manager, Erika
